Water engineering and windsurfing – engineering challenges and opportunities, Rye

About this event

09:00 Registration. 09.30-11.30 On the Water

We will start the day learning how to windsurf and paddleboard. You do not need to be an expert and the event will be perfect for all levels. Once you have cracked the technique there will be races, challenges and some great team building exercises. All the instructors are either BKSA, RYA, or BSUPA qualified so you will get a good introduction into windsurfing and paddleboarding as well as having a safe and fun day.

This event will be taking place on a large coastal lake close to the sea at Camber Sands. All we ask you to bring with you is a towel, swimsuit, an old pair of trainers and a good sense of humour. Wet suits will be provided.

12:00 Presentations and 13:30 Buffet

About the speaker:
Luke Glover has a love for the sea, windsurfing and the coastline of Kent. He works for Thanet District Council which is a partner of the East Kent Engineering Partnership (EKEP). He will be presenting the EKEP's wide ranging capabilities such as rock revetments, timber groyne fields, beach replenishment, pre-cast and in-situ concrete sea walls, concrete repair and dredging. He will take you through examples of coastal engineering schemes that have been designed and managed by the partnership authorities.

The EKEP also includes Canterbury City Council, Dover District Council, Folkstone and Hythe Council and Swale Council. They have a close working relationship and together design and deliver cost effective civil engineering projects.

Dredging at the Port of Ramsgate is essential to maintaining the navigational safety for vessels in the port as well as ensuring the port is ready to accept vessels of ever-increasing size in the future while protecting internationally-recognised marine areas. Herrington Consulting have undertaken numerical modelling to simulate near-field and far-field effects of the annual water injection dredging activities. They will present their methodologies used to simulate the movement of sediment over the assessment period of 34 days and the results of the study.

A fee of £10 is payable for this event and pre-booking and payment is essential.
